I can.

The strange red "cloud" in the sky in the vicinity of the Moon
is an optical reflection of the setting Sun which would have a
similar reddish tint too! From the phase of the Moon (a very
thin crescent where the rest of the lunar orb is illuminated by
Earthshine), these pictures were taken about one day after New
Moon and the Sun would have been only about 15 degrees or so
below the Moon - ideal conditions for camera lens flares!

Maybe that other person who also "apparently" saw a red cloud
low in the western sky near the Moon and the setting Sun may
have observed a single red cloud in an otherwise unspectacular
sunset.

Nothing strange or unusual about this strange cloud or UFO.
